Couple of quick 1-Turns.

Yes, even in Scotland it's too hot for long sessions.  Was even tempted to enter the sea yesterday; madness!  On the trick front, did manage to get a few moon circle to fast throw small lunars before the sweltering got too much.

Nice, Donald. Do you do flat throws, or 1-Turns?

Hope you had fun, shalafi.

Today I missed the In twice before getting Stilt Over The Valley, and also landed the latest Endless Combo trick with witnesses. Hot.

Flat throws, strangely enough. I must confess, the only reason I was landing them with small lunar seemed to be that 8 times out of 10, that was the cup that came up!?!

Yep, quite fun. I even run a small improvised Kendama workshop :)

Also Dee was around, long time no see.

Just tried these. Came close, but not quite. Seems like a flat throw must go to Opposite Lunar though, no? Needs a 1.5 or half-spin to go to Lunar, unless I’m not doing exactly what you are.

It's quite a late throw after the tama swings back up; at the most, the ken is doing a quarter turn I guess.

Managed to get it a couple of times. It seems to come out to Big Cup most often for me, and with a half spin. I guess it depends on how you catch and/or release the ken. It was a little easier once I got the ball to rise up higher on the swing. Phew, it's hot out there... :-)

Nicely done!  Yep, guess it depends on how you do the fast throw.  I must have been leaving it really late and turning the ken almost flat before making the toss.

And yes, it is way too hot for long sessions out there.  Did have bit of a noodle on Saturday; pull up fast throw one turn string pull lighthouse amused me.  Not too tricky once you get your head around it, but ideal for annoying people in a game of KEN :)

Went filming with @Dimensions the other day. Sorry Rob, haven't had time to capture the footage yet.
